Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

I have had such a big response from family, friends and social media about these no churn ice creams that I have been making that I thought I would start sharing each Sunday, as we have over a years worth of flavours!

The first flavour is an original. It’s Vanilla Bean. This is Char’s absolute favourite ice cream. I usually buy vanilla bean powder, but you could use a vanilla bean pod and scrap out the vanilla beans.

Hope you enjoy this original flavour. Stay tuned for next week’s flavour, which is Bella’s favourite.

  • 1 x 395ml tin of condensed milk (full fat or skim milk)
  • 1 x 300ml cream (we use A2 or Dairy Farmers full fat cream)

  1. Whip cream either using a hand beater or mix master until it is stiff peaks.
  2. Pour condensed milk into a square or rectangular dish that you can put into the freezer.
  3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture until combined.
  4. Fold through the vanilla bean powder.
  5. Put a lid on the dish (or cover with plastic and al-foil).
  6. Freeze overnight.
  7. Serve straight from the freezer.
